Latest 90mmF1.8 lens for exakta in great condition. This lens is definitely pristine. It was bought more than twenty years before then it has been well-stored. Cosmetic condition is great. What you see, what you get. Optics is clean(not perfect) according to its age. This lens is more or less sixty years old so that it doesn’t make sense to compare it with new and boxed ones. I understand that some buyers are happy to check the vintage lens against very strong point source then get the chance for further price negotiation. What you bought is a vintage lens, not a modern lens. Please be kind enough to take note that glass cleaning technique in optics factory sixty years ago is not so advanced as today’s technology. From other point of view, your lens might have been refurbished if your vintage lens shows absolutely perfect against very strong light source. Improper refurbishment work might degrade performance of lens significantly. This lens is a great collection because it is pristine. I have seen some refurbished Angenieux 90mmF1.8 available in the market before. Few scratches are on the first element. However, there is no influence for photography. Wipe-out tiny scratches or coating problems will degrade perforamance of lens. On the contrary, you could believe that this lens is pristine. Lens is at Baltimore, MD, U.
